Jordan Rager stepped out on stage to perform country music when he was 14 years old. At
that moment, he knew he wanted to pursue being a singer / songwriter. Rager has won several
awards competing on local, regional and national levels. In 2008 the Georgia Country Gospel
Association  award  him  "Most Promising Male Vocalist"  and  "Entertainer of the Year".  He
repeated both of those honors in 2009 and received the award for "New Country Entertainer of
the Year" in 2010 by the North America Country Music Association during a national competition
in Pigeon Forge, TN.

When he was 17, Jordan was a contestant on the NBC reality singing competiton The Voice in
2012 and was selected by Blake Shelton, who became his coach during the competition. Blake
said, "This is by far my favorite  thing  that's  happened  on  this  show.  Jordan's  the  first  real
genuine country singer, in two seasons of The Voice, that's stepped across this stage. He's not
trying to be something he's not. That's what makes for a country artist." When we talked with
Jordan how Blake's comments made him feel, Jordan replied, "The whole blind audition was a
little surreal.  Definitely not something I ever thought I'd get the chance to do. And I really
couldn't believe it when he said it. Those are big shoes to fill coming from Blake, who is one of
the biggest names in country music today."
Inspired by music artists from Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert to Lynyrd Skynrd and AC/DC,
Jordan cites Alan Jackson as the one that inspires him to write and sing. He told us, "The guy
can't write a bad song and all of his songs are about real life experiences, which is what I write

Having grown up in the small Georgia town of Loganville, Ragers' experiences of "small
town America" reflect in his songwriting.  His singles, "Small Town Skyscrapers" and "Zero To
Crazy" are prime examples of that. These two songs will be included on the new CD "Get Loud"
expected to be released in the near future.

He has peformed at Nashvilles' world famous Tootie's Orchid Lounge  and the  Wild Horse
Saloon  and shared the stage with national music artists such as  Kip MooreGretchen Wilson, David Alan CoeBo Bice  and others.

Ragers'  band  members  are  Daniel  Addison,  lead  guitar  (Kennesaw, GA), Will  Underwood,
rhythm guitar (Atlanta, GA), Zach Brower, bass guitar (Atlanta, GA) and Kerry Denton, drummer
(Atlanta, GA).

 Jordan has been "wearing the roads out" to Nashville working with other songwriters like
Cole Taylor, Thomas Archer, Jeremy Bussey, Jayce Hein and Caeland Garner to name a few,
performing at a variety of venues and will go on tour with two other Georgia music artists,
Lauren Ashley and Tyler Hammond, for the 2013 Southern Throwdown College Concert Series
this fall.  The tour will stop at 20 college towns during a 10 week tour.  He performed during the
Party On The Farm Georgia concert featuring Craig Campbell  October 2013.  He told us at that
time that it's really going to be busy this fall, but exciting and to let the fans know they can expect
more shows to be announced. 

He toured with Justin Moore during his Off The Beaten Path Tour, along with Randy House and Josh Thompson. 

He's also working on a CD which should be released soon.
